Blooming Onion with Hatch Chile and Cheese

A healthier version of the blooming onion - Baked blooming onion with New Mexico chile and cheese | mjskitchen.com

 

Blooming onions are normally all about the fried crispy batter and the dipping sauces. This baked blooming onion is all about the onion and the chile. The following recipe turns a normal sweet onion into a sweet and spicy blooming onion.  Just top an onion “bloom” with a generous amount of Hatch chile, bake, top with some cheese and bake again.  The result – a tender sweet onion infused with the flavor and spiciness of roasted chile and finished off with gooey cheese.

Serve as a side dish or over rice for a vegetarian meal.

A hearty one pot meal with navy beans, green chile, corn, tomatoes and a host of other goodness. mjskitchen.com

 

It’s green chile time here in New Mexico!!!!  They have started picking chile in Hatch and other parts of southern New Mexico, and soon to be picking further north.  So to celebrate the season, I’m partnering with The Hatch Chile Store to bring you a new recipe that uses a generous amount of roasted Hatch chile.  The recipe below yields a hearty, one pot meal with navy beans, green chile, and corn, tomatoes, and a few other savory ingredients. It’s spicy comfort food.  If you already have the navy beans cooked and the green chile roasted and peeled, then it takes less than 30 minutes to bring this dish together from start to finish.

Roasted Chile Cheese

Roasted chile cheese is a mix of roasted New Mexico chile, 3 cheeses, lime, and a few other ingredients. Makes a spicy party dip or filling for a grilled cheese. mjskitchen.com

 

Roasted Chile Cheese is a twist on the traditional pimento cheese.  However, instead of roasted pimento peppers, roasted chile cheese is a mix of roasted New Mexico red and/or green chile, three cheeses, green olives, and a bit of this and a bit of that.  It has no mayonnaise or salad dressing as a pimento cheese might have making it a pure celebration of the marriage of roasted chile and cheese.  It’s sweet.  It’s spicy.  And it’s darn good!!!

Herb Crepes with Roasted Chile

Herb crepes with roasted chile (red and green), pinon nuts and cheese #chile #crepes @mjskitchen | mjskitchen.com

These Herb Crepes with Roasted Chile are a modified and simplified version of the green chile pathiri that I introduced a couple of years ago.  Last weekend I was planning to make the pathiri, but got started late and decided to take a shortcut.  Instead of dipping and stacking the crepes, I made individual crepes using roasted chile, pinon nuts (pine nuts), cheddar cheese, ricotta, and a secret ingredient.  Even though many of the same flavors were there, these crepes were quite different from the pathiri.  They were lighter, quicker to make, had a different texture, and some added flavors.

Green Chile Chicken Posole’

Green Chile Chicken Posole' is genuine comfort food. #green #chile #posole' @mjskitchen mjskitchen.com

 

Posole’ is a traditional New Mexico dish during the holidays and one of our traditional dishes for Christmas Eve.  Our Christmas Eve version is usually made with pork and red chile.  But when we woke up to snow and cold last weekend, I had an early craving for posole’ and threw together this Green Chile Chicken Posole’.  It’s a very easy dish to make and nothing better for taking the chill off and clearing up that stuffy nose.  One might say it’s New Mexico’s version of chicken noodle soup.

Black Bean Chili over Sweet Potato

A vegetarian Black Bean Chili served over sweet potato #chili #vegetarian #blackbean @mjskitchen

 

This black bean chili recipe is one of my pre-computer recipes that I’ve been playing around with since the early 90’s.  It’s a vegan black bean chili, but if you don’t mind a little cheese, a topping of feta is a great finishing touch.  You can serve this chili over rice (brown rice is best) or polenta, or with buttermilk cornbread or tortillas.  But our favorite way is to serve it over sweet potato.  The sweetness of the sweet potato is the perfect complement for the richness and spiciness of the chili.

Green Chile Tomatillo Sauce

Roasted Green Chile and Tomatillo make a delicious green chile tomatillo sauce that can be used for enchiladas, burritos, or whatever your heart desires #green #Hatch #chile #tomatillo| mjskitchen.com

 

This Green Chile Tomatillo Sauce is a variation of my green chile sauce. It uses roasted green chile and roasted tomatillos.  It’s a great sauce to make when you need to tame the heat of some really hot chiles or make a milder sauce for people that can’t handle the heat.

This sauce is just as easy to make as a green chile sauce, especially if you already have the roasted green chile.  If not, just roast the chile and tomatillos at the same time. However,  you’ll need to keep a close eye on the tomatillos, because they roast very quickly on a grill.  You could also roasted them in the oven for more control.
